My Spectrum streaming TV service went off line this week for a period of days. I almost got upset… well okay, I was irritated. let's say. Funny how the smallest interruption in the normal routine can upset the disposition of the soul. Then I remembered that I have a library of music, great tunes, that I hadn’t listened to in years – because of that old routine. A few guitars sit in the corner of the family room that I don’t play nearly as often as I would like because of that same routine.
Likewise, the many projects and honey-do’s that really need to be done, the chair that needs to be repaired and the quiet time I keep promising myself to take. The normal routine has become the enemy. It’s the enemy of a closer relationship with the family and spouse I love, the God I worship, the friendships I’ve neglected and the peace that is lost due to "the normal routine."
My Christmas present to my family, my God, my friends, and to myself is to “go off line” just like my streaming service. I'll be a better soul because of it.
Great love to you all,
